I have always assumed that creditors look at someones report and see the cards they have. Seeing an AMEX might help or not. They look at your amex in good cindition and might say 'hey AMEX gave him a card' They might want to compete.

 

All this is my pure assumption.

Re: will amex help me?

To answer your first question ~ we know that creditors do look at who is on your CR. AMEX has denied many with the reason that they had "negative experiences with other consumers" when people have first preemie or others showing on their CRs.

Will it help you get approved ? Maybe, but I honestly doubt that the creditor matters more than your payment history and utilization.

To answer your second question, I believe money manager is independent of AMEX and they won't be giving your info out.
